Steel blue looks great, I am debating between White and Steel Blue.

Have fun and enjoy your new car.

Thanks. I was thinking white as well.

The car is great so far. Everything is exactly as I have read here and the reviews: The center armrest slides way too easily, the glovebox cooler door also slides wayyyyy too easily and it's a bit low on torque (but, I am a 10 year Mustang GT driver!)

The price was great and I'm going to like the better gas mileage.

PS: It'g going back next week already for a slight rattle in the rear end. Something is loose back there. I don't think it's a big deal.

has anyone heard of this?

Congrats on the new ride. Good to see you convert. If you were looking for a mix of power and gas mileage, you should've waited for the SRT-4 Caliber. Good buy nonetheless, though.

Do you have a cage to make up for the weaker body due to the convertible?

No. But I did strenghten the frame by welding in subframe connectors.

It removed alot of the cowl shake. The doors are still aligned after 10 years.

sometimes if I don't close up the flip-down speakers ~just right~, they will rattle a bit. (never mind, if you don't have the MusicGate system.)

WONDERFUL!

Congratulations on the new ride. Cool pics too. That steel blue is a nice color. If I were doing it all over, I think that I might have chosen that color because of it's chameleon-like (sp) image.

Congratulations! I have one of those on order which should arrive in about 2 weeks. A few more photos and angles of your car appreciated:) The color of the rear angle is much better than the street shot in case you were using different cameras.

3dee,
your steel blue r/t looks great! That was my first choice color when I ordered in march. I was told the steell blue was late availability, so I went with an inferno red sxt. May have to upgrade to steel blue r/t, maybe when fwd comes out.
